rca to xlr - best way?

connecting a sub out from my receiver to a sub amp. receiver output is rca, but the inputs on the sub amp are xlr. what's the best way to convert? adapter? a cable? does anyone manufacture cables that convert rca to xlr and vice versa? really could use some advice, as well as an explanation as to the benefits of xlr connectors. thanks

Or....any manufacturer will make whichever model cable you prefer with the ends that you like! Also...there are "adapters" that you can purchase that convert RCA to XLR. I believe that Cardas makes one. I just bought an XLR (source) to RCA (amp) from www.fatwyre.com.....they made me one from Wireworld eclipse CHEAP!!! and had it to me in 5 days. I bought a cheapie because it is for my headphone amp. I think too much of my equipment to use an adapter (adapters seem to go against the "simple circuit" theory behind high end audio), however, I know high-enders that do use adapters with no/litte degredation.
